Zybez RuneScape Help's Screenshot of a Slayer

In RuneScape, Slayer is a skill where you must prove yourself against many difficult monsters. Unlike other skills in RuneScape where the training is repetitive, Slayer is a very diverse skill. Slayer awards experience based on the completion of certain tasks. If you want to explore the map whilst experiencing the thrills of combat, slaying is for you.

Another great reason to explore the slaying skill are the Slayer masters, who assign tasks with greater difficulty than the previous master, which ultimately leads to a greater profit. Take note on the information they will provide about your assignments as it will be useful.

2.0 - The Basics of Slaying

There are several parts that make up the foundations of Slayer. Each need to have your full attention to if you are to get off to a good start and do your best when it comes to completing tasks and getting the experience (and rewards!).

2.1 - The Process

To begin slaying you must talk to one of the Slayer masters, they can all be found be either looking on your mini map for a Zybez RuneScape Help's City Key of a Slayer Master or using the world map feature. Those who have completed Dream Mentor will also be able to contact any of the Slayer masters by using the Contact NPC spell. Tasks vary by which Slayer master you use, you could be assigned only a few birds, should you choose to take an assignment from the Burthorpe master and up to 250 Abyssal demons from the master at the Ancient cavern. Some tasks that the masters assign will contain a lot less monsters for you to kill than you would expect, this is usually down to those monsters being a great deal stronger than the average task.

To help you on this assignment, the Slayer master has also provided you with an "Enchanted gem." If you "Activate" the gem, you will be able to communicate with one of the Slayer masters. They will tell you how many more monsters you have to kill, as well as the best techniques to use when fighting the monster. It is recommended that you always bring your gem along due to the information it provides. If you lose this gem, you can buy another one for 1gp from any Slayer master.

When you are done with your assignment, go back and talk to the Slayer master for another one.

If you get a higher-level assignment that you are unhappy with, you can get a new, lower-level one from the Burthorpe Slayer master Turael*. He only changes assignments offered by stronger Slayer masters.

*During While Guthix Sleeps, Turael dies and is replaced by his daughter Spria.

2.2 - Slayer Masters

All Slayer masters will assign you tasks that vary of either normal monsters or Slayer monsters, the normal monsters being those you can kill without a Slayer level and the slayer monsters being those that require a level in order to kill.

Each Slayer master will assign monsters within a set amount, these are as follows: Turael/Spria will assign 15-50, Mazchna will assign 40-70, Vannaka will assign 60-120, Chaeldar will assign 110-170, Sumona will assign 120-185, Duradel/Lapalok will assign 130-200 and Kuradal will assign 150-250 on average. Some tasks are however, stronger than others that the master will assign, or require a hard quest in order to reach them they are as follows: from Turael/Spria - icefiends (10-20), From Mazchna - Wall beasts (10-20), from Vannaka - Crocodiles, Earth warriors, Green dragons and Sea snakes (30-60), from Chaeldar - Bronze dragons, Mutated zygomites (30-60) and Elves (60-90), from Sumona - Iron dragons, Red dragons, Scabarite minions, Terror dogs (30-60) and Elves (60-90), from Duradel/Lapalok - Black dragons, Iron dragons, Goraks, Scabarite minions, Skeletal wyverns, Steel dragons, Suqah (40-80) and Mithril dragons (4-8), and from Kuradal - Black dragons (40-90), Blue dragons (150-200), Iron dragons (60-100), Mithril dragons (4-15), Skeletal wyverns (40-90), Steel dragons (40-100), Suqah (50-100), Terror dogs (60-80) and Tzhaar volcanic creatures (80-110*). When Kuradal assigns you Tzhaar to kill she will also offer you a higher alternative of 280, if you accept this task must be done purely in the fight caves and you will receive 25k slayer xp for defeating the TzTok-Jad.

As a final note about Slayer masters, you require a combat level of 3 for Turael/Spria to assign you a task, a combat level of 20 and Priest in Peril complete is required for Mazchna to assign you a task, a combat level of 40 for Vannaka to assign you a task, a combat level of 70 and the Lost City quest complete for Chaeldar to assign you a task, a combat level of 85 along with a at least 35 Slayer and Smoking Kills complete for Sumona to assign you a task, a combat level of 100 along with a Slayer level of 50 and Shilo Village complete for Duradel/Lapalok to assign you a task, and finally, a combat level of 110 and a slayer level of 75 for Kuradal to assign you a Slayer assignment.

* - During the While Guthix Sleeps quest, two of the Slayer Masters, Turael and Duradel, die. Upon their deaths, two new Slayer Masters replace their positions. The replacements Spria and Lapalok perform exactly the same roles as their formers, this includes giving the same slayer tasks.
** - Sumona requires Smoking Kills to be complete before she becomes a Slayer master.

3.0 - Slaying Equipment

When you reach certain Slayer levels, you will be able to fight certain monsters. Some of these monsters may require the use of special equipment. Every piece of Slayer equipment is available for purchase from the Slayer masters.

4.0 - Slayer Monsters

When you reach certain levels, you will be able to fight different slayer monsters. Most of these monsters can be found in the Slayer Tower, north-west of Canifis, or in the Slayer Dungeon, far east of Rellekka. These monsters can be very rewarding; however, you must remember to bring your Slayer equipment along in order to kill them. Note that killing slayer monsters does not give any slayer XP. Experience gained from killing any monster set as a slayer assignment is equal to the creature's life points divided by 10, unless certain conditions apply - see FAQ section. The ability to fight these monsters at certain levels, is just a reward. In the table below, please realize that the level given is the slayer level required to kill them, not the monster's combat level.

The Ancient cavern is accessible after certain progress with the barbarian training, to enter you must either dive into the whirlpool at the barbarian outpost, or use a Ferocious ring to teleport there. The cavern is home to many powerful monsters such as the Mithril dragon, which drops the infamous Dragon full helm. The cavern has also become home to the slayer master Kuradal, who has a special dungeon full of many high level Slayer monsters.

5.2 - Lumbridge Swamp Dungeon

The Lumbridge caves are a dark and potentially dangerous labyrinth of tunnels. The Tears of Guthix mini-game can be accessed upon completion of the Tears of Guthix quest, and can be found at the back of this dungeon. While you are in these caves, you must always have a light source, or else you will be attacked by a number of bugs very quickly. Also depending on the form of light source you use, you may or may not need to bring a tinderbox to re-ignite it. Make sure that you do NOT use a light source with a naked flame, or it will explode! A rope is also needed to enter the dungeon. You however only need to use one rope with the hole, as your rope will permanently stay there unless of course you manually remove it. To the far east, you can find a series of caves belonging to the Dorgeshuun goblins. There are many Iron ore and Silver ore to mine down there.

There are many low level slayer monsters in this dungeon including Cave bugs, Cave crawlers, and Wall beasts that attack when you pass positions on the cave wall marked in the map. To avoid having the Wall beasts constantly attacking you, wear a Spiny helmet.

During the Smoking Kills quest you may only access the upper floor, but after the quest you can access the stairs.
The lower level has four sections behind barriers. To pass through the barriers you must defeat the respective Slayer monster boss. You only have to defeat the boss once to gain access to the section. Kurask Overlord, Mightiest Turoth, Basilisk Boss and Monstrous Cave Crawler are the respective boss monsters. Each section contains portals which will transport you to the Rellekka Slayer Dungeon and the respective monster locations. These portals are one-way only.

There is no easy way to train Slayer like there is in other skills. No matter what you do, you are always going to have to fight a large number of monsters.

7.0 - Social Slayer

Co-operative Slayer is now possible for pairs of players who wish to be handed a task that they would like to complete between them, great for those who find the style of defeating Slayer task monsters a little isolating and lonely. To start, all you need is a Enchanted gem and, of course, a partner. To be assigned a co-op task, you must both either have no tasks assigned to you yet, or be on the same task. Once you are ready to start a co-op task, use your Enchanted gem (or Ring of slaying) on your partner to invite him to a Slayer group, then get a task from a Slayer master to begin. These tasks are just like the regular tasks you receive as if you were on your own; the number of monsters to kill is not doubled to cater for it being a two-player task.

Note: You must both be able to use the same Slayer master to get a task from them. Also if there is a task that you do not want and want to use Slayer points to cancel it, both of you must spend your points or you will end up with different tasks in the same group.

For those inviting a person to their group, the invitee must have their private chat set to 'On', or 'Friends' and have you added as a friend. To accept an invitation, right-click on your Enchanted gem and select 'Co-op options', then accept the invitation. For those with a Ring of slaying, this same interface is found by rubbing the ring, selecting 'Other options' (aside from the teleports), then choosing the second option. Also, use this interface if you would like to leave your group.

Slayer experience is not shared between you and your partner. If you kill a monster from your task, you will get the full experience for slaying it and your partner will get none of the share. Once you finish your task, you will both be awarded unique co-op Slayer points (this does not require completion of Smoking Kills) which you can use by opening the Rewards interface at any Slayer master and selecting the 'Co-op' tab.

In regards to Slayer points, this will be divided and shared between the two of you. Depending on how many monsters each of you have killed, you will get a share of the potential points that would be earned from the task. For example, in a co-op task from Kuradal (who gives 18 Slayer points a task), one person who slew 25% of the monsters gains 4 Slayer points (rounded down), while the other with 75% of the kills gets 14 points (rounded up).

For information about unique co-op rewards, see the rewards section.

8.0 - Rewards

Rewards can be sectioned into two categories. Those that you receive from Slayer masters, and those that you as drops during your assignments. When you complete Slayer assignments consecutively you will earn points with the slayer masters. These points start coming in after completing four consecutive assignments and then after that point you will earn a set number of points for each task you complete. If you skip a task by going to Turael though, you will have to start again by completing four assignments in order to start receiving points again.

The points you receive vary upon which Slayer master you use. These are the points earned for each master: You will also receive bonus points for the every 10 assignments you complete and for every 50; an assignment count that falls into a multiple of 10 will award you with slayer points equal to 5 time the normal amount, for example - Chaeldar's bonus for an assignment within a multiple of 10 would be 50. The bonus you receive for an assignment count that falls into a multiple of 50 will award you with a bonus equal to 15 times the normal amount of points you would normally receive, using Chaeldar as an example again - your 50th task will give 150 Slayer points.

As mentioned above, you receive points from completing slayer assignments. The uses for these points can be broken down into three types; Items and experience, abilities, and assignment stopping. These are explained in full below.
Items and Experience

You can spend the points that you receive at any slayer master. These points can be spent on a plethora of new items, abilities and experience to help you out with slayer.

Assignment Stopping

The final thing you can spend your points on is being able to stop a current assignment or stop it entirely.

For the first option, you may end a current assignment by paying 30 points. This is like a substitute for using Turael except you won’t have to go through all the hassle of doing a low leveled task. Using this will also stop you from getting the penalty of doing five tasks again to gain points.

The second option allows you to prevent your Slayer master from assigning you that task ever again by paying up 100 points. If you feel that you want to accept the tasks that you canceled then you can go to the list below and click on the X mark. Beware though as you won’t be able to receive the points you spent on preventing them back. The amount of tasks you can prevent depend on the amount of quest points you have.

  • 50 quest points allows you to prevent one task.
  • 100 quest points allows you to prevent up to two tasks.
  • 150 quest points allows you to prevent up to three tasks.
  • 200 quest points allows you to prevent up four tasks.
  • 250 quest points allows you to prevent up five tasks.
  • 300 quest points allows you to prevent up six tasks.

8.1 - Co-op Slayer rewards

Differing from the regular Slayer points system, completing Slayer tasks as a pair will yield unique co-op points which are used to buy the rewards below. As explained, these rewards are unique only to co-operative tasks and are bought only using the special co-op points. The rewards do not benefit you as an individual greatly and are designed to be more beneficial to your future co-op tasks.

For every co-op task you complete, you will gain 1 co-op point. This applies to tasks assigned by any master, so naturally the most efficient way of getting these is to choose a lower level master for your task. To get all the rewards listed you will need 250 points.

For more information on co-op Slayer, see this section of the guide.

Reward Co-op points
Ability to use food on your partner 25
Partner gains half your potion effects 75
Baby aquanite pet 50
Baby ice strykewyrm pet 100

9.0 - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do the Black Mask and Salve amulet work together? Can the Black Mask be recharged?

A: No, only one of them works at any time. No, the black mask cannot be recharged.

Q: In a multi-combat zone, who will get the Slayer experience when two people are fighting a monster?

A: The total amount of xp is equal to the life points of the monster divided by 10. That amount will be split given the following criteria: half for the one that made the most damage, and half for the one that made the hit that killed the monster. This is the same if a monster is killed in a single-combat area; i.e. by one player logging out or teleporting and the other finishing the kill. Please note that both players will have one kill deducted from their task count as normal.

Q: Does slaying monsters give you normal combat experience?

A: Yes.

Q: Will I have to complete a quest to finish an assignment?

A: No; a Slayer master will not assign you monsters that you are not able to reach. For example, you would not have to kill Elves if you have not done the Regicide quest. However, if you've started a quest, you may be given monsters from that quest to kill. In Regicide, you may be assigned Elves if you've started the quest, even if you haven't actually reached the elven land yet.

Q: Does Killing the Slayer monsters give me slaying experience?

A: Only if you are assigned to kill them by a Slayer master.

Q: I heard that you can receive the Jad as a slayer task from Kuradal, is this true?

A: When Kuradal assigns TzHaar volcanic creatures, she will also offer to increase the task to 280, which is the total amount of monsters in the fight caves. If you accept this extension, you will only be able to kill monsters in the fight caves for any slayer xp. If you manage to kill TzTok-Jad, during your task, you will be awarded 25,000 experience in Slayer.
